Other than the everpresent Number Nine-ing?

Either George's "they are standing still" (I think that's what he said) or the bit at the end where Yoko says something that sounds like "…if you become naked…"

If you could either speed up or slow down any Beatles song, make it more of a ballad or a rocker, which would you pick? Like if they'd done a slower or faster version? Doesn't get rid of the original, though. Think Revolution 1 and the single version.

P.S. Kerry, the cloud on your "Imagine Peace" thing sorta looks like a duck.a-hard-days-night-george-10

"What happens to them?" insisted Milo.

"Oddly enough, they often grow ten times the size of everyone else," said Alec thoughtfully, "and I’ve heard that they walk among the stars."

Humm. a-hard-days-night-john-7 "And I Love Her" 1,5 times faster. It's a great song, but I just can't stand how slow it is. And a bit rougher singing voice, I suppose.  And some electronic bass solo as well.

 

To continue with the recurring hair theme... Do you think the Beatles should have shaved their legs? And if not, why a-hard-days-night-john-6

Two of Us is brilliant up tempo and should be released (was originally a rocker in the Get Back sessions).

 

If a beatle could sing you a song which beatle would you chose and which beatle song?

 

Oh, minime answered and set a question.  Beatles with shaved legs? No, when would they have the time? A strange image 4 beatles in their hotel room shaving their legs. And no doubt John and Yoko would have recorded and tried to release it.

I like Sgt. Pepper's onwards.

 

Is Paul really dead and we have been fooled for almost half a century with a poser named William?

He's dead! But boy is his replacement talented. a-hard-days-night-paul-8The Beatles were under enormous pressure from as high as the Vatican to keep this under wraps and this is the real reason Brian died, he was upset after Paul did not attend his Sgt Pepper release party and was going to spill the beans. Let the truth set us free! blue-meanie

 

If you were to tour one of the Beatles homes from any point in their lives (including all 9 of Paul's lives a-hard-days-night-paul-3), which house would you choose?

I'd like to explore Paul's East Sussex home because I bet you could learn a lot about his day-to-day life from it. It always seemed to be the one place he loved best, and it looks so homey from the pictures. I want to look at his bookshelves. Also, I bet it would be fun to go through all the storage in John's apartment(s) and Paul's basement. They kept a lot of stuff over the years, especially Paul, who I believe keeps every outfit he's ever worn! (Exaggeration...)

What is your favorite item in your vinyl collection (if you have one)? Beatles or non-Beatles.

My vinyl White Album, Beatles wise. A promotional copy of Neil Young's Comes A Time beats it out overall, however.
Um, Um, Um, Um, Um, Oh, got a question! If you could have one date with a Beatle, who? (Single date, no marriage).

To help mith out...I'd say Ringo. I'd want Paul for more than just one date (and also, I'd be too afraid I would be disappointed in him if I knew him personally. You can't idolize someone who you know really well!!) John might be fun, but he might also be in a shitty mood. George would probably be sullen (or spouting Hare Krishna's every five seconds). With Ringo, you know he'll probably be nice. He probably won't expect S-E-X, and I won't be disappointed because I don't idolize him. I think Ringo will make sure you have fun! Nothing serious...just a good time.

Question: (Is it okay if I do a non-Beatles related question?) If you could take a vacation anywhere, where would you go? In your own country or outside of it??

Outside. I'd love to go to England.

 

If you could play an instrument with the Beatles, which one would you choose?

Rhythm sticks. It's easier to pretend I know how to play them than fool them into thinking I can play the guitar. And my mind could wander off to see, how they are playinga-hard-days-night-george-1

Nowadays. The UK would lose because of political voting.

Then - some silly novelty song about a pet rabbit would still win.

 

If you got the chance to pen the third beatles film (when they were looking for a script after help!) what would be your plot synopsis and would they play themselves?

I think I'd have gone for that Lord of The Rings thing they were supposedly thinking of doing. As a huge geek, I want to see what that would look like.

 

Do you like any of John's protest songs, or are they all crap?

Should the Beatles catalogue get a new remix or are most satisfied with a good remaster? george-martin

Seaglass: They're mostly crap, and I wouldn't shed a tear if STINYC was deleted from memory (well, Sunday Bloody Sunday and Woman is The N***** of the world exceptions). What did they achieve, exactly?
Ed: Fine with me.
One solo song from all each of the four, if you were to prove to someone they did good after they split. What are they?

John: Instant Karma (sums up Johns approach to music, the words are really good and still sounds brilliant).

Paul: Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five (maybe an obscure choice but possibly the best song on Band On The Run, possibly the most successful album by a solo beatle. So much going on throughout and the whole song rocks. Plus a real highlight of Paul live. You cant help but be carried away by it. I know people who thru this wanted to hear more of Pauls music).

George: All Things Must Pass (fabulous lyrics, fabulous recording (even on the released outtakes sounds fabulous) and the title song from George best album as well as possibly the best and most consistant solo album release)

Ringo: I'm The Greatest (tho I doubt you could convince anyone Ringo done good).

(All from the early 1970's - go figure.a-hard-days-night-ringo-12)

 

If the beatles were different types of fruit which would they both be (different fruit for different beatle)? (I couldnt think of a decent question.)

 Seriously the first thing I thought of.

 

If you could play a board game with the Beatles, what game would it be? (this may have been asked already)

I'd play Monopoly, simply because that game can go on for days and it would allow me to be with them for longer! Hmm, I wonder what their reaction would be if it ended up being Beatles Monopoly…

 

You can help with the recording of just one song. Which song do you choose, and how are you involved (i.e. what instrument you play, playing George Martin and helping to produce it, etc.)?

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.
